Meat is great, but you can’t just have it as both an entree and a side dish. You’ve got to mix it up a little with some vegetables once in a while. They not only add some color to the plate, but they also bring some much needed nutrients. And if you’re looking for a vegetable that compliments any entree perfectly, look no further than asparagus.
The most notable thing about asparagus that may come to mind is the way it affects one’s urine. As you may know, it gives it an unpleasant odor because of the asparagusic acid. When this acid gets broken down by the body, it breaks down into various sulfur containing compounds. Oh, the things you can learn from Wikipedia!
You’re not here for a biology lesson, though. You’re here because you want to cook some delicious asparagus and you don’t care about the smell. Well, as usual, we have you covered with these 30 unique recipes. Simple uses like in soup and salad are easy, but battering or crusting the tasty stalks with various toppings is another option. You can even get really crazy and make Fermented Pickled Asparagus.
Whether you’re just looking for a nice side dish to compliment your pork chop, or you want to make something creative to impress your friends and be the stalk of the town (had to do it), grab some asparagus and get cooking! Just be sure to let us know which recipes you like best!
